U.S. 1 is once again beating the drums for the arts. First and foremost, for the poets and short story writers and all those who appreciate their work, the invitation is open for our annual Summer Fiction issue reception and reading this Thursday, August 12, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Labyrinth Books at 122 Nassau Street.
The event starts with the usual wine and cheese socializing, followed — at around 6 p.m. — with an introduction of the writers whose work appeared in the July 28 Summer Fiction issue. Extra copies of that issue will be on hand. If you are reading this article, you are invited: Meet the writers, meet the U.S. 1 editors (rarely seen in public), and meet the staff of Labyrinth Books, the generous host of this free event.
Looking ahead to our Fall Arts Preview issue on September 15, we encourage all arts organizations to forward their schedule of events, productions, exhibitions, openings, etc.
We know it’s not always easy. Many organizations are spending hard-earned resources compiling their information and posting it to websites, E-mail lists, Twitter, FaceBook, and whoever knows what the next great thing is in social media. At that point they are exhausted and hoping that their public will come to them and find all this information. But do the arithmetic: None of us can follow everyone else all the time.
Sending a separate release to U.S. 1 will pay off in multiple ways. We will include relevant events in our fall arts preview. We will consider your event for a more substantial story in a subsequent issue of U.S. 1. And finally we will have your information in our events database, updated daily at www.princetoninfo.com and referenced daily through Tweets and Facebook posts.
To accomplish all this you need only send your information to one E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions? Give us a call at 609-452-7000 and a human being will answer the phone.
#b#To the Editor: Eden Raises $80K#/b#
On July 18th Eden Autism Services held its seventh annual Eden Family 5K Race and One-Mile Fun Run sponsored by Munich Re — breaking this event’s fundraising record with more than $80,000 in net proceeds.
A special thanks goes to Munich Re and Tony Kuczinski, president & CEO of Munich Reinsurance America, for its primary sponsorship of the race; Curt Emmich of Princeton Forrestal Center, who served as race director; the 14 additional companies that provided major sponsorship or in-kind support; and the many other individuals and businesses who contributed goods and services to our event.
We are deeply grateful to the dedicated steering committee that helped plan this outstanding event; the many volunteers, without whom this event would not be possible; and to the walkers and runners who participated in the race and Fun Run. The funds raised will help Eden continue its mission of improving the lives of individuals with autism and their families.
Thomas P. McCool, Ed.D.
President & CEO, Eden Autism Services
